    There's lot of info under the search function on spatchcocked turkey. I see that you are new so probably have found that function yet. If you look near the top of the forum you will see Home, Forums, Cookbook, etc.. If you click on Forums it will give you some more choices are where you can surf this website. One of them is Search. Click on it and type in what you are looking for. It took me a while to find it, but there is a wealth of information in there. ;)

    Doesn't seem to be done too often, I suppose because the large area that a big bird might need.
